Masterclass: R for data visualisation (and reporting)

Online event

Whether you are a beginner or are needing a refresh, you can join this training to gain familiarity with the statistical programming language R and learn how to take your data and reporting to the next level.

We have developed this intro level training to give people a leg up to get started toward reporting and dashboards in R - we would appreciate if you could share with potentially interested colleagues outside of the group. Hope to see some of you there, too!

ABOUT THIS EVENT:
Have you got lots of ideas of what you want to do with your data but just can’t get there yet? Over 5 sessions we will look into the basics of the statistical programming language R and how it can be applied to data visualisation and automated report generation. We cover data cleaning and pre-processing, transforming your data, displaying it in multiple formats (data table and plots), and finally tying it all together in a R Markdown file that you can save and share with your audience. We will work through multiple datasets and exercises so on conclusion of the class you can hit the ground running.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
You are new to R or feel a bit rusty with your R skills and have a keen interest in furthering your ability to manage, display and share data. Maybe you have been mainly using Excel or an off-the shelf tool like Power BI, but are frustrated by its limitations and are keen to build more advanced visuals to do your data justice. You might have a dataset or model you want to prepare outputs for and want to progress to a more powerful, efficient and streamlined process. This Masterclass can be used as an entry into R or can be used as preparation for our R Shiny Masterclasses.

Crystal Johnston (Full-Stack Developer)
Nick Snellgrove (Full-Stack Developer)

FORMAT:
5 interactive online sessions; supported by dedicated online learning plattform for asynchronous learning and interaction.

R Shiny Dashboards Masterclass

Online event

R Shiny dashboards are a game-changer for targeted, effective communication of everything from simple research and sampling outputs to highly-dynamic and complex datasets. Delve into R Shiny and learn from our dashboard experts in an Introductory and Advanced Masterclass depending on your skill level.

We have developed this training to give people and intro or booster with R Shiny - we would appreciate if you could share with potentially interested colleagues outside of the group. Hope to see some of you there, too!

INTRODUCTORY MASTERCLASS
This online Masterclass will introduce you to R Shiny programming and will cover R Shiny capabilities, design approaches, coding essentials and how to publish your newly created app. Case studies will be used to provide applied examples of R Shiny apps in action.

ADVANCED MASTERCLASS
This advanced Masterclass will expand on basic R Shiny functionality and teach you how to tackle more complex features in a structured way. We will dive into creating dynamic interfaces for multi devices and explore R packages that provide a richer user experience.
